IND vs ENG Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. India and England will play against each other in the 2nd T20I at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
It looks like it has become a tradition for the Indian team to lose the first match and then go on to win the series. India did not perform well and lost the last game by 8 wickets.
Everyone expected Rohit Sharma to play all the T20’s, but the news is that he has been rested for the first two games. KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan opened the innings but got out early and pressured the remaining batsmen.
Kohli’s struggle with the bat continues as he was out for a duck in the last match. Shreyas Iyer batted very well, scoring a fifty, which means Surya Kumar Yadav will have to wait a little longer for a team spot.
Rishab Pant and Hardik Pandya batted decently but couldn’t score much as the pressure was building up, and got out playing rash shots. Washington Sundar and Axar Patel fit all-rounder roles well as they are equally good with both bat and ball.
The bowling unit had a tough time in the last match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was not that effective, and so was Shardul Thakur. The main spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was very expensive, and the other two spinners Axar and Sundar, did a decent job.
Indian team would want to make specific changes in the team and come back stronger in the next match.
The England team proved why they are the No.1 T20I team by their first match performance. They won the match comfortably by eight wickets.
The opening pair Jason Roy and Jos Buttler, started as expected and scored quick runs in the powerplay. Roy was unlucky as he missed his fifty by just 1 run. Dawid Malan and Bairstow batted decently and ensured a comfortable victory for England.
They won the match comfortably without even Morgan, Stokes, and Curran getting a chance to bat. This shows the strength of their batting lineup. Jofra Archer has been in perfect form in the shorter format as he picked up three wickets in the last match.
The other fast bowlers, Wood, Stokes, Curran, and Jordan, also bowled tight lines and never allowed the opposition batsmen to score runs freely. The only spinner Adil Rashid also complemented them well by picking up 1 wicket.
England would be hoping to continue their domination in the series by winning the second T20I.
